We moved to NWA from NY and always wanted to go to Serendipity for their famous frozen hot chocolate. For some reason or another, we never made it; so we decided to find a recipe and make it for ourselves. So…cozy up by the fire and enjoy. Serve it to your kids with snowballs (powdered donut holes). They’ll love it.
I found this recipe on Epicurious. It was delicious and super easy to make!
- 6 half-ounce pieces of a variety of your favorite chocolates
- 2 teaspoons storebought hot chocolate mix
- 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 3 cups ice
- Whipped cream
- Chocolate shavings
Chop the chocolate into small pieces and place it in the top of a double boiler over simmering water, stirring occasionally until melted. Add the cocoa and sugar, stirring constantly until thoroughly blended. Remove from heat and slowly add 1/2 cup of the milk and stir until smooth. Cool to room temperature.
In a blender place the remaining cup of milk, the room temperature chocolate mixture, and the ice. Blend on high speed until smooth and the consistency of a frozen daiquiri. Pour into a giant goblet and top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings. Enjoy with a spoon or a straw. . . .or both!
